The Specialised Researchers in our Controversial Activities Screening (CAS) team look for information on companies in order to identify and assess involvements in a range of activities widely considered controversial, such as weapons, fossil fuels, pornography, tobacco, and 13 other areas. Unsurprisingly, this often means looking for information on activities that companies prefer to keep away from the public eye, concealed in the small print or greenwash in their publications.
As member of our team you will put under your magnifying glass corporate websites, annual reports, sustainability reports and other sources for evidence of involvement. Creativity and a detective’s mind are our most useful skills.
Your investigations will take from 20 minutes for the simplest companies to one day for the largest and most diversified conglomerates. But on average you will be expected to research and update between 5 and 10 companies a day.
One of the key skills we look for is the ability to work autonomously, with discipline and self-motivation to cope with the high pace of the research and the responsibility to produce high quality research.
Eager to learn, your daily job will provide you with the opportunity to discover companies’ practices and the full scope of their activities, and to understand how our clients use our data to inform their SRI strategies.
